Anonymous, 14 Feb 2020I've been using this phone for 2 days and here
are my first impressions:
-very fa... morePixel 4 XL has Samsung made OLED. Comment above has to for smaller Pixel 4 which has great color accuracy but grainy image most of the time.
-XL is smooth as butter in both image and speed. A little bulky overall.
XL's OLED is one of the most color accurate I have ever seen.
Battery on XL is notably better based on my usage.
great phone, although if you're not a software person probably not the best choice
having the fastest updates is great and android 11 is gonna add some awesome features
im not that big of a fan of the face recognition, dont get me wrong it works great. But id prefer a back mounted finger print scanner any day
it has been my daily driver for 2 months now and over all its been serving me very well, no regrets buying it
but the p4a leaks seem really attractive to me
Great phone Terrible service We have one 4XL each my NFC stopped working 5-6 weeks ago. Google has take three weeks to do nothing. including two different "supervisors" who said they were going to sort this issue only to never be heard from again.
Have had to revert to an old Sony as i still don't have a resolution
So, 23 Feb 2020This phone or Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus??? S20 is probably the better all-round phone but Pixel 4 is being sold at discount at the moment. I have the P4XL and I'm loving it. Battery life is meh but I'm never far from charger and have Pixel stand.
This phone or Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus???
The Pixel line changed the mobile landscape forever for me. I've had every generation and they only get better! I love the Pixel 4 XL and recommend it over any phone, period. I love the Face Unlock, the hang features for snoozing your alarm or changing the song, now playing, call screen, squeeze assistant and so on. So many great things about this phone!
I've been using this phone for 2 days and here
are my first impressions:
-very fast and smooth performance (even lightly smoother than on Galaxy note 10+)
-Ugliest home screen that I have ever seen on a phone! I thought new Samsung phones had ugly home screens but this one is the ugliest of them all.
ANOTHER HOME SCREEN (Launcher) and another icon pack is a must download for this phone.
-File manager is terrible! No way to create folders inside the file manager. So you must download a third party file mamager ( Asus File manager is my top choice but you choose for yourself )
-Settings of the phone are even more complicated than on Samsung phones.
-Horrible looking LG OLED display! Looks like OLED display from Galaxy s6! GOOGLE: You must switch to Samsung OLED displays or order high quality LCD display!
There is no way that Google is thinking to beat apple unless it provides straight forward easy experience like iphone does.
I’m iPhone user over the last year and I don’t know why people hate google phone.
It’s an excellent phone and cheaper than Samsung.
- Flat screen! ( unlike stupid curved screens on Samsung phones ).
- Cleaner software
- Good enough camera
I personally don’t like how stock android launcher looks like. I like Samsung’s s6 theme.
So I would download Nova launcher, plus S6theme and together would me this phone look like galaxy s6. In nova launcher you can even make icon shape look exactly like on iPhone ( rounded square shape).

Unbiased answers please In this case it's mostly a matter of iOS vs Android. Both phones get the best cameras you can get on a phone, day one updates with long term support(no other manufacturer do this, not even Samsung) and both use super quick face unlock and neither have bloatware.
Pixel has a higher refresh rate display(90Hz vs 60Hz), radar chip for even faster but less secure face unlock and a better telephoto camera
iPhone has a Ultra-Wide Angle camera, better video recording and a 2 year longer update period(5yr vs 3yr) and from what I can tell, the iPhone has considerably better battery life.
Everything else is dependent on how much you like iOS over Android or Android over iOS.
I'd personally choose the Pixel but I'm biased. I use a Pixel already and have never gotten an iPhone before.
This isn't a bad phone, but for a "cheaper flagship" OnePlus 7t is just more worth your money...
In the pixels defence. I was going to get this.good looking phone amazing camera. Everything is top notch. And the most important thing first class updates. The only reason i got the Galaxy S10 is because i got a better deal on my network.
AlexP, 29 Jan 2020Agree, except good looking phone. It's uglyWhat's ugly about it?
AlexP, 29 Jan 2020OnePlus 7T pro is much better option than pixel or iPhoneI agree i just swapped to the OnePlus 7t Pro McLaren edition and I couldn't be more happier.
Smashd, 29 Jan 2020iPhone is better in every aspect. Unless you prefer android, there are lot more options availableOnePlus 7T pro is much better option than pixel or iPhone

Pixel 4XL or iPhone XS Max?
Unbiased answers please
It is a good phone but I would even like a fingerprint sensor.Please google bring the fingerprint sensor back in the pixel 5.
I bought Google Pixel 4 XL in the beginning of January 2020 and I am very happy with it. Of course, it depends on what expectations each individual has. However, this phone fulfils all my needs:
- awesome camera
- good looking phone design
- no edge-display and no notch
- large and sharp display with beautiful colours
- very loud stereo speakers
- good reception
- good call quality
- software runs smooth with android 10
- pure android with regular updates from Google
I self-optimized my phone so I get two whole days battery life on a normal usage.
